Earlier this summer, Celtic fans had a faint hope that Patrick Roberts would return to Parkhead for a third spell.
But if rumours are to be believed, that hope is now about as dead as Brazil's chances of winning a sixth World Cup title this summer.
Roberts, who re-signed for Celtic last summer on a season-long loan after previously spending 18 months in Glasgow, looks like he is on the brink of a £10 million move to Leicester City.
According to The Mirror's Live Transfer Blog [07/07/2018, 19:18], the Manchester City-owned winger is about to join the 2016 Premier League champions on a permanent deal.
It remains to be seen if Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers was even interested in bringing the 21-year-old star back to the Scottish Premiership for another adventure, but fans of the Hoops have wished him well on Twitter regardless.
Here is how some of them reacted:

Roberts returning to Parkhead last summer represented a big boost for Rodgers, though the English attacker only wound up making 12 Premiership appearances for the Bhoys.
That was mainly due to injury, but it's also because James Forrest had his best season as a Celtic player and Roberts simply stood no chance of displacing him on that right wing.
